Wild Works Theatre

Felbrigg Hall, Norfolk: 2015 + Trelowarren Estate, Cornwall: 2017

Directed by Bill Mitchel & Kyla Goodey. Music by Vicky Abbott 

This was Bill's last production, and maybe his most precious. He died just before we brought it back home to Cornwall. We did it all for him. 

For this show I sang Vicky Abbott's stunning music in an A cappella quartet whilst dressed as a woman/crow. 


"Darkness. Love. Terror. Freedom. The wild. Wolves.
Will you be led by sharp-tongued crows? Will you walk from the safety of civilisation into the deep-dark wild?

Wolf’s Child, tells the tale of ‘Mother’ who protects her girls from the dangers of the wild. When a wolf attack leaves her injured she sends her most trusted girl into the woods in her place. Here the girl discovers darkness, love, terror and freedom.

Wolf’s Child is a story for all the senses which stirs the soul and explores the very essence of being human."
